“Wild Bill and the Flying Sparks are a good old-fashioned honkytonk band. From their cowboy hats to their pedal steel player, these guys are the real deal. If you’re looking for some classic country and some American roots music, this is the band for you.”
-Sheryl Hunter, music writer, Newspapers of New England
